Finally, an intelligent comment ("No Match for U.S.," Feb. 1 letter) about the gun advocates who believe that unlimited guns are needed to protect themselves from a tyrannical government. Do these advocates not understand that the very people against whom they would rebel would be their fellow citizens in the armed forces? The so-called tyrannical government would send in the National Guard, Reserves, etc. to quell the rebellion. Do the words "civil war" mean anything to these people?

100 percent safe?

According to Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the NRA, the shooting range in Texas where another two senseless and tragic deaths occurred last week, should have been the safest place on earth ("Iraq Veteran Held in Death of Celebrity SEAL, Friend," Feb. 4). One hundred percent of the people present were locked and loaded and armed with high-power weapons. Isn't that Wayne LaPierre's prescription to control America's gun violence?
